Accountant at 1421 Consulting in Beijing
In the year 1421, China discovered the world. During the Ming Dynasty Emperor Zhu Di (朱棣) commanded the fleets of Admiral Zheng He (鄭和) to conquer the world. Within two years they discovered Australia, New Zealand, the Americas, Antarctica, the Northeast Passage and circumnavigated Greenland. Through this journey the Chinese conquered the world on paper, because they requested all kings, warlords and tribes to submit to the emperor by signing a piece of paper. They did not wage a war, request taxes or enslave people. This striking difference is at the heart of explaining the difference between the West and China.
1421 Consulting Group is founded by Peter Pronk in 2011 and is aimed at bridging the gap between Western and Chinese partners. We guide Western businesses starting or staying in China with strategic consulting and local operational services. Why?
Because China excites us, guiding Western companies drives us and the challenges of it all inspires us.
